Just a few Quick questions. I have a Jungle Lord Playfield that I am working on. I have attached some close up pics. I used ME and 91% Alcohol to clean the playfield. There are still ball swirl marks but before I go further I did a repeated wipe down with Naphtha.
The pics are where I am at currently. This one will have a good bit of airbrush touch up that will be needed. Some of the details are very intricate and I am not sure how I will get them done.
My questions are from these pictures am I ready to have my Auto Clear Coat buddy lay down the 1st dust coat and 2nd light coat of Auto Clear? How do you know when you are ready? I know that I need to secure the backside, place masking tape over the back of the switch holes and other places where clear will be sprayed, and remove the drop targets. But at what general point do you say I am ready to go to clear?
I have a couple of inserts that move slightly when pushed and are lifting, so I will glue them with the 2 part epoxy (exactly as detailed in Vids guide). Should I glue all of them down to prevent future lifting?
What does everyone do with light sockets, can I just use a bulb during clear coating?
There are still swill marks, so I hit these with ME and alcohol until better/gone?
I have three small holes (not sure why) just below the bottom insert between the flippers. From the bottom of the circle insert to the hole seems to be some wood split, should that be carved out and filed, or sanded and filled or what? Is there a guide on filling holes and repairing playfield damage in Vid's guides (TY!)
Anyway this is my 1st pinball, my 1st restoration (maybe I am crazy for going all in on my 1st).
Thank you for all the help from everyone and thank you Vid for your amazing repair guides!
